Jones.
Fresh off a plane from Las Vegas, renowned restaurateur and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump looked more radiant and lively than ever when she entered the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® “Breakfast After Dark” Gift Lounge. “I’ve been gone for three days… I miss my baby!!” she yelled out loud. When bystanders asked which baby she was referring to, she laughed and said, “Giggy of course!”. Lisa was overheard talking about her love for cooking with the lo-cal spread. ‘I make breakfast for all meals, so I put this on my toast and don’t feel guilty after’. When asked if she cooks for her sweet husband Ken, Lisa smiled and said, “of course! I like to be the only one who does the cooking. Ken’s the man and a man should never go near a women’s kitchen.” The poised entrepreneur was later overheard giving advice to a small group of women in their 20’s. When it comes to success, Lisa’s advice for the younger generation is to “think outside the box but keep your dream realistic.”
Looks like Rumer Willis might have found her future hubby. The long blonde haired starlet arrived with her sexy new sidekick Jayson Blair. When asked what the duo like to do after dark, they replied, “we party with the puppies.” Later, the twosome got touchy feely while trying on New Balance Custom US574 sneakers with Jayson even saying outloud, “she looks so cute when she runs”. Onlookers were in awe, as the loving rocker chic duo checked out the new TiVo Premiere 4 DVR and raved about their go-to show House of Cards. “We’ve been ripping through those DVD’s”, said Jayson. “It’s been one of our favorite nightly activities”, he said as he giggled and nudged his other half. When asked by a bystander what they like to dine on, Rumer was excited to talk about her strict healthy diet. “I’ve been eating raw lately and it’s been changing my mood. I’m happier”. Perhaps her Mother Demi Moore’s recent emotional stint in the media had something to do with this change in diet? Later the couple listened to the Foo Fighters on Ultimate Ears headphones and scored waterproof watches from Aquaswiss. Onlookers pointed out that Rumer let Jayson do most of the talking. “She’s a very shy girl”, said an acquaintance, “but Jayson loves the spotlight”.
Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams has officially become a fan of LA. The friendly longtime Chicago native chatted with bystanders and was overheard saying that she’s been crashing in former band member Kelly Rowland’s apartment and feels guilty that she “mooches off her digs”. Since being cast in the hit live show FELA!, Michelle has been loving the laid-back LA lifestyle and getting in touch with her inner “surfer girl”. While discussing The City of Angels with a member of her posse, Michelle snagged New Balance Custom US574 sneakers and shouted “these will be perfect for my new workout routine!” and “needs to tone up with squats”. Later when Williams spotted TiVo, she became giddy with excitement knowing that she could start recording her favorite show, Scandal, which she watches every Thursday night with roommate and best friend Kelly. “After, Michelle began listening to her own music with Ultimate Ears headphones and spoke about her childhood attending concerts with her father. “He exposed me to different genres of music”, the songstress said, “it made it difficult to choose which one to pursue”. Before heading out, Michelle was asked about a possible Destiny’s Child reunion and quipped, ‘If we wanted to, we would just call each other and make it happen’.
Songstress Michelle Williams was spotted Thursday catching up with fellow musician Questlove. While gushing over her love for Questlove’s popular Philly cheesesteaks, the beauty managed to lose the attention of The Roots’ front man when he became distracted by several bedazzled tubs of the lo-cal spread. To the amusement of fellow guests, he ran over to the station exclaiming “Man, I love it. How can someone NOT love it! Nothin’ better than that smothered all over a hot waffle.” After chatting briefly with a star-struck Colin Hanks, Quest stopped by to check out New Balance’s Custom US574 sneakers. While admiring a pair designed in honor of Public Enemy, one of the show’s inductees, Questlove casually mentioned that as a shoe enthusiast, designing shoes is definitely something he is interested in…perhaps a new side project? Hopefully it won’t cut into any time he will be spending on the launch of his new restaurant, Hybrid, with Stephen Starr next month at Chelsea Market.
Talk-show host and funny lady Chelsea Handler stumbled into the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® “Breakfast After Dark” Gift Lounge after almost accidentally stumbling on stage. Spies overheard Chelsea laughing and saying, “I wouldn’t have had a song prepared for such an occasion!”. The blonde bombshell, accompanied by her current beau André Balazs, were calling each other “babe” and left to get a “stiff vodka soda”, Chelsea’s surprising drink of choice for the night.
Bombshell Cindy Crawford stopped by and when asked what she likes to do after dark, she replied, ”I like to cuddle with my kids and hubby.” Later, Crawford was overheard obsessing over New Balance’s Custom US574 sneakers designed in honor of one of the night’s inductees Public Enemy. “I just bought New Balance’s this morning!”, Cindy shouted, “I’m looking forward to wearing them during my morning workouts.”
Colin Hanks impressed the ladies with his lightning speed remote control skills while checking out TiVo®. Never one to be deemed a “one-trick pony,” Hanks showed off his comedic skills by gracefully modeling handbags by Thursday Friday.
